Gavin Maxwell, best known for Ring of Bright Water, describes in thrilling detail the story of his four years hunting the basking shark. When Maxwell acquired a small island in the Hebrides off Scotland after World War Two, he decided to hunt the thirty-foot leviathan of the northern waters for commercial purposes. Every step of the way presented danger and difficulties, making this a tale of sea chase with very few peers among books of maritime adventure.
